Want to establish a spirit of giving within their organization and allow future members to continue granting to charities the group supports.
Do not have a 501(c)3 status but want to accept tax-deductible, charitable gifts.
Are willing to work together to determine the causes their organization wishes to support.
Want to make a long-term impact on the charities that are most important to them.
Many businesses establish Committee Advised Funds to facilitate corporate giving.
